Comic Strip Acknowledges Loss of ABC Soaps

(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — Soap cancellations giving you the blues? If so, maybe this will help brighten your day. The Wednesday, June 1 edition of the popular comic “Marvin,” created by Tom Armstrong, paid homage to the recently canned ABC sudsers “All My Children” and “One Life to Live,” by capturing the mood prevalent among most soap fans about to lose two of their favorite daytime dramas.

“Marvin” focuses on the lives of a little boy named Marvin, his parents Jeff and Jenny Miller, their dog Bitsy, and several other family members (including Jenny’s parents Bea and Roy) and friends. It first debuted in 1982. Click here for more information.
